For whoopie pie batter
All pupose flour 15 Ounce ((3 cups))
Unsweetened cocoa powder 6 Ounce ((1.5 cups))
Baking soda 1 Tablespoon
Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Unsalted butter 1 Cup (16 tbs) ((2 sticks, at room temperature))
Sugar 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Eggs 2 Large ((extra large))
Buttermilk 2 Cup (32 tbs) , at room temperature ((powdered buttermilk and water used))
Pure vanilla extract 1 1/2 Teaspoon
For seven minute marshmallow frosting
Sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Corn syrup 1 Tablespoon ((white corn syrup))
Egg whites 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) ((about 2 egg whites))
Salt 1/8 Teaspoon
Pure vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon



1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

2. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper and set aside.


3. In a bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar until well mixed.

5. Add eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined.

6. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until well blended. Do not over mix the batter.

7. Using a medium sized scooper, scoop out batter and place it onto the sheet pans.

8. Place the sheet pans in oven and bake them in the center of the oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove the pans from oven and let them cool.

For Frosting:

9. To make the frosting, set up a double boiler, and add sugar, corn syrup, egg whites, and salt in it.

10. Using a hand mixer on medium speed, whisk the mixture for exactly 7 minutes or until thick and glossy.

11. Add vanilla extract, mix well and let it cool.


12. To assemble, place a scoop of the frosting in between two pie halves. Repeat for the remaining.


13. Serve and enjoy!
